The Golden State Warriors clawed their way back against the Philadelphia 76ers in the third quarter, eventually taking the lead on a Steph Curry and 1 with about five minutes left, while finishing the quarter tied at 80 a piece heading into the forth quarter at the Wells Fargo Center.
The Warriors came out focused, forcing three Sixer turnovers on their first three possessions and effectively cut the lead from 12 to one in the first few minutes of the third quarter. Steph Curry leads the Warriors with 17 points and six assists, Dorell Wright has 14 points, while David Lee had a nice third quarter, extending his numbers to 12 points and 12 rebounds.
Both teams continue to turn the ball over, With the W’s and Sixers committing a total of 37 of them. The Sixers have a 25-15 advantage in fast break points, a large part of why the Warriors aren’t leading this game. The W’s are also a meager 1-11 from 3 point range.
Philadelphia’s Lou Williams leads all scores with 19, while Jru Holiday has 15 and Elton Brand has 10.
It’s going to come down to the wire in Philly, hopefully the W’s can hit some threes to ice this game.
